"The uioet to be regretted net of my life," says a commander of the navy, "was a letter I wrote to my mother when about seventeen years of use. She always addressed her letters to nie as 'my dear boy.' I felt at that time I was a man, or very near It, and wrote saying that her constant ad dressing me as a 'boy' made iuu feel Ulspleased. I received In reply a letter full of reproaches and tears. Among other things, she sitl<l: 'Yon might grow to be as big as Goliath, as strong as Samson and as wise as Solomon; you might become ruler of a nation or em peror of many nations, and the world might revere you and fear you, but to your devoted mother you would al ways appear in memory in your inno cent, unpretentious, unself conceited unpampercd babyhood. In those days when I washed and dressed and kissed and worshiped! you, you were my idol. Nowadays you are becoming part of a gross world by conflict with it, and I cannot bow down to you and worship you, but If there are manhood and maternal love transmitted to you, yon will understand that the highest com pliment that mother love can pay you Is to call you "my dear boy." ' " Souir Old Time (iiiintn. Cajanus, a Swedish giant who was nine feet high, was oil exhibition in London in 1742, and several old hand bills still exist which sot forth the measurements of this freak of nature. Thirty years later we have Charles Byrne, who was eight feet four Inches In height In his stockinged feet. lie, however, died young, at the age of twenty-two, from hard drinking, rot ter O'Byrne, another Irish giant, fol lowed a few years later. lie was born at Kinsale in IT<sl and at the age of fifteen was eight feet high. This by the time he was twenty three had Increased to nine feet four inches, and then he changed his name to O'Brian In order to make people think that ho was descended from King Brian Bo roihme and went on exhibition. At that business he, of course, soon real ized a very comfortable fortune and re tired, dying at Clifton on Sept. 8, 1804. His will especially provided that his body shoidd be thrown into the sea in order to prevent the surgeons from cut ting it up. No Rhyme Fop Tlppornry. A poet once Jumped to the conclusion that there was no rhyme to Tlpperary and said so, whereupon an iudignant Irishman, who chanced also to be a bit of a versifier, pounced upon him and poked fun at him in a lengthy poem, every other line of which rhymed or was supposed to rhyme with the place In question. Thus: A bard thcro was In sad quandary To find a rhyme for Tlpperary. Long labored ho through January, Yet found no rhyme for Tlpperary; Tolled every day In February, But tolled In vain for Tlpperary; Searched Hebrew text and commentary, But searched In vain for Tlpperary. And so on through many scores of stanzas, ending up with; He paced about his aviary. Burnt in despair his dictionary. Blew up sky high his secretary. And then In wrath and anger swaro ho There was no rhyme for Tlpperary. Glummvh mill tlx* Hyex. Every one knows tlint In using a field glass It is necessary to adjust It to a proper focus. Suppose that you put one of tlio tubes at your focus and the other tube at a focus that suited some one else and then you looked through both tubes, l'ou would have a more or less blurred vision, and if you kept 011 looking the chances are that you would fool giddy and get a headache. Now, the two eyes are sup posed to have an equal natural focus, and when by any chance that focus Is unequal a headache results. The rem edy Is a pair of glasses or a single glass to make the eyes equal In power. Tlie Diiiion. The Danes, or Northmen, first be came prominent In European history In 783, when they began to ravage the north coast of France and south ern shores of Great Britain. The dar ing of these hardy seamen'was re markable, for In their small ships they even penetrated the Mediterranean and became terrors to the seaboard popula tion of Italy, Sicily and Greece. The first king of Denmark is said to have been Skiold, (10 B. C. All It IVcciH'il. "I made this potato salad for you myself," smiled she. "Isn't it deli cious V" "It would be," assented her husband, "If you had put a little more oil and vinegar and pepper and mustard seed and horseradish in the dressing and Introduced a sliced egg or two and a few white onions and left half of the potatoes out." Tolerance In Jnpiin. Westerners seem to find It Incon ceivable how the Japanese can main tain allegiance to different creeds at one and the same time. One broad ex planation of this is that we as a nation are tolerant In mind, especially In mat ters pertaiu4ug to religion. — Japan Times of Tokyo. Tlie WrniiK Jii in. Haskell—What's Bobby crying for?

Sometimes It Is a clock wonderful for the complexi ty of its movements and Its busy popu lation of automatons that attracts our admiration, like that In the Cathedral of Strassburg. At other times the Im mense size of the machinery and the dials excites astonishment. This is the case with the celebrated clock In the tower of the Church of St. Kombaut at M echiin. A writer in La Nature thinks tills clock possesses the largest dials that exist in the world. There are four of them, one on each side of the great square tower, and their extreme diam eter is nearly thirty-seven and one-half feet. The figures showing the hours are nearly six and one-half feet high, and the hands have a length of nearly twelve feet. Who Geta Your Vote? "Do you sco that man there?" re- ; marked a barber to a customer lu his chair. "Well, he has bad one and the same job for the past forty-seven years and has been married ail that time, and his wife has never at any time during that period known what salary her husband was getting. The wife gets so much a week and no more and has never been able to learn what amount of money her husband has been receiving in exchange for his la j bor. Now, what bothers me Is which I should have the diamond medal—l say diamond, as in this case the finest would seem to be needed—the man for being able to so long lialTlo a woman's curiosity or the woman for surviving so long an unsatisfied curiosity."—Co lumbus Dispatch. A Fearful Duel. The most terrible duel fought at any time in l'aris was the one between Colonel IX, an old Bouapartist officer, and M. de G. of the Gardes du Corps, a mere youth, but of herculean strength. The two men, lashed togeth er so as to leave their right arms free, were armed with short knives, placed in a hackney coach and driven at a tearing gallop around the I'lace de la Concorde. They were taken out of the coach dead. The colonel had eighteen stabs, the youth only four, but one of these had pierced his heart. MnHlerod tlio Q, Hundreds of people have cured them selves of impediments in speech. One of last year's mayors as a young man used to find it almost Impossible to pro nounce words beginning with a "q."
